Day 12: Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman is another one of those classic holiday TV specials from the 60s/70s that I loved as a kid.

What I always found interesting about the Frosty story (more so than other favorites like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town) was the emphasis on the seasons and cycles and the implication that you really need to appreciate things while they are here.

Frosty, after all, like Christmas, like Santa, and like winter, only comes around for a brief time each year. So, enjoy him and enjoy the moment when you can. Frosty vivimus, vivamus.

This is part of my 25 Days of Christmas blog series.
